Larry King, the American trademark of talk show host, has recently lost his son and daughter within weeks of each other. The son, Andy King, 65, passed away from heart attack; the daughter, 52, lost her battle to lung cancer shortly after diagnosis.
Larry King threw himself into the center of the scandal by starring in Chinese Communist Party’s propaganda in Mar 2019. Being merely paid a few thousand dollars, King read questions off a script; then a fake Russian journalist by the name of Dolgova’s answers were plugged in separately (the “interviewer” and the “interviewee” never even spoke with each other, not even through phone). The completely unrelated footage fragments were stitched together afterwards to make up a storyline.
This heavily forged video was posted under the title of “Larry King US China Special Conference 2019”, and it was fanned by social media accounts associated with CCP in lightning speed across Twitter, Facebook and YouTube (Let’s not forget that Twitter removed 23,750 CCP-linked accounts that were pushing fake news about CCP virus, Hong Kong and Miles Guo in Jun 2020. Those accounts were highly coordinated and manipulated by demonstrating the behaviors of a cyber army). It turns out, without any surprise, that the video aims to smear and threaten Miles Guo, the business guru who fled China as a Chinese dissident and leads the Whistleblower Movement to terminate the totalitarian regime of CCP. Even Larry King himself admitted in a phone interview that he was not familiar with Guo and he hasn’t even watched the video himself.
This disinformation war against Miles Guo is merely one of the many weapons CCP uses consistently to push its evil agenda by leveraging its state apparatus overseas to target an individual who simply disagrees. Mr. Guo’s attorney, Daniel Podhaskie summarizes that “the fact that Guo is the most targeted individual by the Chinese Communist Party’s fake social media arsenal reflects the CCP’s fruitless efforts to discredit Guo and silence his campaign to bring freedom to the Chinese people.”
It is hard to believe anyone who cherishes his reputation or career, would be so unwittingly involved in a shameful scandal as this. However, this is not an innocent mistake of his; on the contrary, it is another demonstration of King being mindless by socializing with communists for his personal gain, just as his ties to Russian state media after his career was going downhill: During King’s last month on CNN in Dec 2010, he interviewed Vladimir Putin, who would influence the next stage of his career. King’s shows in the past decade were licensed to air in Russia by its state media RT, the notorious “principal international propaganda outlet”. Russia and CCP speak the same language, share the same beliefs, and benefit each other to a level that they cooperate with each other’s propaganda scheme. It takes one’s whole life to build up a reputation, but it only takes one night to ruin it all.
While we express our deepest and most sincere condolences to King’s great loss and the unbearable pain to bury two children in a roll, we cannot help reflecting what is karma, and the idiom that what goes around and comes around. “The Lord sees everything you do. Wherever you go, he is watching.” “So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin.” Is it God’s warning and punishment for selling your soul to the devil?
It is very unfortunate that Mr. King has to go through such a tragedy in his 80s, considering he himself has not been in great health since his stroke in 2019. Life is short, and do not waste it on making a deal with the devil.
“He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?”
